Overview

Overview

Located about 10 miles from the town of Woodland Park, Colorado, Meadow Ridge Campground is pleasantly situated on a ridge above the Rampart Reservoir. Here, campers have access to prime fishing and a selection of mountain biking and hiking trails.

The campground is in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, due north of the popular Pikes Peak. The peak has an altitude of 14,110 feet and was first climbed in 1820. Its claim to fame is that it is America's easternmost peak over 14,000 feet.

Natural Features:

Sitting in a ponderosa pine forest at 9,200 feet, the 19-site campground overlooks the Rampart Reservoir. The surrounding terrain includes a mix of grass meadows, spruce, Douglas fir and aspen.

Recreation:

Rainbow and mackinaw trout are plentiful in the renowned fishing reservoir and hikers enjoy the trails in the area. Rampart Reservoir Trail and Nichols Reservoir Trail are both worth exploring. Rampart Reservoir Trail extends for 14 miles and is open to mountain biking.

The dam and boat ramp are closed in 2013. No power boats may launch at Rampart Reservoir. Only hand-carried canoes or kayaks may be used on Rampart Reservoir in 2013.

Facilities:

Most campsites are nicely shaded with a grassy understory, and have limited privacy from other sites. Drinking water, picnic tables, campfire rings and two accessible vault toilets are provided for campers. At sites 6,7,10,14,16 and 18, the picnic table and campfire ring are below the road, and steps must be used to reach them. Firewood can be purchased onsite.

Nearby Attractions:

Take the kids on a tour of the U.S. Air Force Academy or explore the quaint town of Green Mountain Falls. While there, ask the locals about the place they nicknamed Kermit the Frog Mountain.
